Nobody knows what tomorrow will bring, no one is immune to mental health difficulties. Whether it be mood or anxiety; autism or other conditions recognising the need for help is the bravest step to take. Your goal doesn't need to be huge, it can be a few more steps along the journey to freedom from the torment of mental health difficulties.
I consider my position as a therapist to be to a privilege, in being part of your personal journey to change. It’s not just about accessing a therapist it’s about accessing the right one.
